Bill McKibben is not a person you'd expect to find handcuffed in the city jail in Washington, D.C. But that's where he spent three days in the summer of 2011, after leading the largest civil disobedience in thirty years to protest the Keystone XL pipeline. A few months later the protesters would see their efforts rewarded when President Obama agreed to put the project on hold. And yet McKibben realized that this small and temporary victory was at best a stepping-stone. With the Arctic melting, the Midwest in drought, and Sandy scouring the Atlantic, the need for much deeper solutions was obvious. Some of those would come at the local level, and McKibben recounts a year he spends in the company of a beekeeper raising his hives as part of the growing trend toward local food. Other solutions would come from a much larger fight against the fossil-fuel industry as a whole. Oil and Honey is McKibben's account of these two necessary and mutually reinforcing sides of the global climate fight - from the absolute centre of the maelstrom and from the growing hive of small-scale local answers to the climate crisis. With characteristic empathy and passion, he reveals the imperative to work on both levels, telling the story of raising one year's honey crop and building a social movement that's still cresting.

    I have read ESL. It's good for a graduate level course in Statistical learning. Applied Predictive Modeling combined with Intro to SL is the way to go if your aim is the application of machine learning methods.

      The patient prospers in their empowermentРall the physicians want the information the patient compiles. The physician prospers as the patient is that much more likely to adhere to the treatment regimen the doctor and patient have jointly undertaken. The doctor???s practice prospers because every patient who adopts medication tracking reminds the doctor to offer medication tracking to other patients. The physician and patient benefit together by reducing the time required for burdensome medication reconciliation, thereby allowing more time for the patient to raise and discuss concerns and for the physician to explore and counsel about those concerns. This self-reinforcing cycle may be initiated by either physician or patient, and since as we know, patients are particularly trusting of advice offered by their physician, the suggestion to adopt the medication tracking tool recommended by practice or ACO or insurer may motivate the patient to take that step. Don???t let the perfect be the enemy of ???better.??? Though relatively few patients or their caregivers may adopt your favored appРsince only 20 patients??? data need be reported in 2016Рstarting small, even with only a rare patient adopting medication tracking still enhances the provider???s overall quality measures and serves to remind the provider of the value of the tool, acting as ???pull??? even as you and other leaders ???push??? improvements in quality through medication tracking to your provider colleagues and to the patient population you serve. Physicians, patients and practices all benefit when they Let Patients Help.

      Took me just a couple of days to go thru their approval/retailer-submission process, and my audiobook popped up on the first retailer (Audiobooks.com) just a couple of days later, with everything looking correct there.

    I'm not sure what you mean by "translate titles" into barcodes. You can apply barcodes to any books or items you have cataloged in LibraryThing, regardless of ISBN. If there's anything I can do to further clarify things, feel free to email me! (loranne@librarything.com)
